Pastor Lynne Hines-Levy will participate in the March for Our Lives Event in Milwaukee with the group Collars for Gun Control, and has submitted the following invitation to all clergy and leaders: “There has been a lot of blame laying and finger pointing since the Parkland shooting…Where are the churches in solving this problem?”

On March 24, the young people of Parkland, Florida have organized a national march, and Hines-Levy will be joining with an ecumenical group called Collars for Gun Control in Milwaukee. She invites all clergy and leaders to join with the group also as they stand together, peacefully, all religions, all denominations. Pastor Lynne said, “We will be shoulder to shoulder, in one accord, in obvious clerical garb, so that there can be no question, and we will make the presence of the global church known as a part of the solution to the issue of gun violence in our neighborhoods and beyond.”

The event will take place on March 24 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Milwaukee County Courthouse. Event organizers state the event begins at the Milwaukee Courthouse with a march to City Hall. There will be speakers at the Milwaukee County Court House, and voter registration at City Hall. View event details on Facebook.

Collars For Gun Control is a group of clergy and lay faith leaders, from all denominations and faith traditions, youth and adult, who believe religious leaders need to be more visible and vocal in the public dialogue advocating for gun control. They invite all clergy to join them for all or part of the event and encourage clergy to wear clerical collars and/or stoles. Collars for Gun Control will gather by the fountain/flagpoles area at the Milwaukee County Courthouse. View their Facebook page to learn more.
